This is my favorite Grub theme. Unfortunately the Linux Mint icon isn't appearing when I startup. Any suggestions?

It already has some sort of system to get the screen size during the installation, although it is hard to make it work on every platform. You can try to install hwinfo and reinstall. Also try to change the screen resolution for grub in /etc/default/grub using the variable GRUB_GFXMODE.

Wow, thanks for our fast answere.I tried the gitlab fork(with hwinfo) and made the settings by myself in the theme.txt to be right with icon sices etc. The only problem is the font file "DejaVuSans13.pf2" I gues its 13pxl? Can you provide it with like may 28pxl or 36pxl?

Alright, fount the hint for me:

grub-mkfont --output=DejaVuSans36.pf2 --size=36 /usr/share/fonts/truetype/dejavu/DejaVuSans.ttf

- Copied the file in the theme directory
- and change the grub.cfg file to the new font. May 36pxl is a bit large and 28pxl are enough.

Maybe you can put some code in the installl stcript, to create 2-3 different font sizes that can be choosen during the scipt, by asking up screen resolution.

Have you reinstalled (Install.sh)? You can try to override the variable SCALING=2 or 3 and reinstall as well.

I have reproduced the error on a virtual machine. However, it appears that the same error happens will all other themes I have tested. For some reason, the manjaro icon is not detected (this might be related to debian/ubuntu grub configuration). In the meantime, you may change the icon name to gnu-linux.png as it is the default fallback,

oddly enough neigher gnu.png or gnu-linux.png works either.

GRUB

How to install a grub theme:

  1. Extract the theme to /boot/grub/themes/

  2. Edit /etc/default/grub file. Find the line starting with "#GRUB_THEME" and change it to "GRUB_THEME=/boot/grub/themes/[THEME_FOLDER]/[theme.txt]" (replace [THEME_FOLDER] ; [theme.txt] is probably OK ; remove "[]" brackets)

  3. Run sudo update-grub
